How's the Montecito Real Estate Market?

Here’s a great case study on what to do when a property languishes on the market.


This chic Summerland duplex, listed for $2,395,000, had been on the market for 140 days without selling.


Recognizing that first impressions are crucial, the sellers realized that the charm of their interior remodel was not reflected in the exteriors, so they decided to give the landscape a makeover. The goal was to enhance the property’s curb appeal and create inviting outdoor living spaces that would resonate with the Central Coast lifestyle.


The Transformation:

Before:

  • A useful although generic front yard with minimal landscaping

  • Outdated plantings

  • An overlooked backyard lacking defined spaces

After:

  • A vibrant front garden with native plants and destination seating

  • Pathways, gravel patios, and modern lighting

  • A beautifully designed backyard featuring multiple destinations, an outdoor kitchen, and a fire pit


The landscape remodel made all the difference, and buyers responded with enthusiasm to the whole property, seeing the exteriors and interiors as a cohesive and inviting home with multiple destinations for living, working, entertaining, and relaxing. The property was re-listed and, within just 11 days, received two offers. Ultimately, it sold for 100% of the asking price. This case demonstrates the importance of curb appeal and landscaping — it’s the “jewelry” of the property, and you don’t want to go to the party without it!
